Jimmy Kimmel is not a fan of Trump, and compared him to a certain "Game of Thrones" villain in his opening monologue on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" Tuesday night.

 "I'm not joking when I say that I would feel more comfortable if Cersei Lannister was running this country at this point," Kimmel said in response to comments Trump made during a press conference Tuesday about the violence at the Charlottesville protest Saturday.

Kimmel proposed a plan "solve all of our problems" in his monologue, and jokingly suggested that instead of impeaching Trump, we should make him king.

In his monologue, Kimmel said that he doesn't really believe Trump wants to be president, but he'll never step down because his ego is too big, so we should compromise with him and make him king. 

Kimmel explained that monarchs don't do too much, referencing how little power England's Queen Elizabeth II has:

"We need to set him up in a castle. Maybe in Florida? Send him up to the top and then lock the door to that castle forever. Everyone can call him your Highness, maybe we give him a scepter that he can hold, he can sit there watching 'Fox and Friends,' maybe chip golf balls out of the window. There's no way he turns that deal down."
